It is time. Time we gather. Time we talk about Sexual Harassment. Time we put accountability structures in place. Time we take action towards meaningful change.

We are holding this Town Hall to make space for the conversation around sexual harassment in our field and in our local community, and EVERYONE IS INVITED.

Please attend. Please bring your co-workers, your collaborators, your board members, your castmates, your theatre funders, your theatre friends. This is for all of us. On every level of our theatre ecosystem. The conversation will be richer with everyone at the table.

More details on the schedule of the evening to come. The main goals for the event are:

  • To process the news about sexual assault and harassment incidents at theatres around the country, and begin to assess the implications of these incidents - and others that may yet surface - on our own theatres and practices.

  • To hear from the Executive Directors of Actors Equity Association (AEA) and Stage Directors’ and Choreographers Society (SDC) about their accountability policies in place

  • To learn about alternate models and practices - from theatre workers who have gone through successful accountability processes, to community-based transformative justice models

  • To center the people most impacted by and vulnerable to these issues

This is just the beginning, but we have to start somewhere. Please join us.

*This event was organized by Theatre Bay Area, Cal Shakes, and a 15-member planning group that reflects a cross section of Bay Area theatre workers.
